These threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a biocompatible and absorbable material consisting of very fine threads, the same material used in cardiovascular surgeries, so they rarely cause side effects and avoid allergic reactions. This method restores immediate firmness to face, jowls and tightens the skin in one very simple and safe procedure.
Some of our patients may have naturally thin lips, which are often asymmetrical and have cracks from dehydration and loss of volume, or they simply wish for more shapely, fuller lips. Either way, this is the ideal treatment.
The effects are immediate, but it must be taken into account that, as this is an absorbable substance, the effects wear off over time. This procedure won’t cause any side effects, except in some cases slight discomfort that will subside quickly.
The dermal filler is hyaluronic acid which is injected into the lower lip, upper lip or both to increase volume. It is also possible to fill one part of the lip more than the other to correct irregularities.
From the minute you arrive for treatment, we want you to feel at home. We are always happy to answer any last-minute questions you may have about the procedure.
The filler is placed under the skin with ultra-fine needles for precision and minimal discomfort, and in some cases a cannula may even be used. The entire injection process takes approximately 30 minutes, but the results can last up to a year.
You’ll notice an immediate improvement in the size and shape of your lips, although full effects may be more apparent three to seven days after treatment. During this time, do not rub or scratch the injection sites.
The key to excellent results is to achieve the right balance ensuring total naturalness, so the number of syringes of filler used will be decided on an individual assessment basis for each patient.
Lip hydration is very similar to a conventional filler with the difference that we vary the amount and type of hyaluronic acid used for each patient, focusing the treatment on restoring that natural pinkish-reddish colour, to give greater vitality to the lips without altering their volume.
It is important to bear in mind that not all patients will need the same amount, as each patient’s level of dehydration and requirements vary and must be assessed prior to starting the procedure.
It is important to remember that this treatment does not substitute surgical rhinoplasty, because the results are temporary. It is a non-aggressive technique with satisfactory results without the need for anaesthesia, with little to no post-treatment discomfort.
